San Antonio Spurs have a 41-29 record (39-30-1 against the spread) so far this season and are currently tied with two more teams in the 6th place of the West. They have eight consecutive wins and in their last game they won at home against the Blazers with a 108-103 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by DeMar DeRozan with 21.6 ppg, adding 6.1 boards and a team high 6.1 dimes per game. He is followed by LaMarcus Aldridge with 21.2 ppg and a team high 8.9 boards per game.
Golden State Warriors have a 47-21 record (28-39-1 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the first place of the West. They have won three of their last four matches and in their last game they won on the road against the Thunder with a 110-88 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Stephen Curry with 27.9 ppg, adding 5.3 boards and 5.2 dimes per game. He is followed by Kevin Durant with 27.4 ppg, 5.7 dimes and 6.7 boards per game.
In their two previous meetings earlier this season each team has won once at home (Warriors by 39 points and Spurs by 12). Spurs have a 28-7 home record, while the Warriors are 23-11 on the road. Warriors are better offensively, scoring 117.9 ppg to Spurs’ 111.9, while Spurs are better defensively, allowing 110.4 pgg to Warriors’ 111.8. Warriors have a better field goal percentage (48.8% to 47.9%), while Spurs have a better 3-point percentage (39.9% to 37.8%). Warriors are better in boards grabbed (46.2 to 44.5) and in dimes made (29.1 to 24.4), while Spurs are better in turnovers committed (11.9 to 13.7). Spurs are as hot as it gets and while Vegas odds give the Warriors a -2.5 spread, don’t expect them to beat the odds and pick the hosts in this one.
